import requests

url = "https://api-v2.short.io/statistics/domain/domainID/top"

payload = {"period":"total","limit":10,"tzOffset":0,"column":"country"}
headers = {
    'accept': "*/*",
    'content-type': "application/json",
    'authorization': "<<apiKey>>"
    }

response = requests.request("POST", url, json=payload, headers=headers)

print(response.text)
const axios = require('axios');

const data = {
    "period":"total",
    "limit":10,
    "tzOffset":0,
    "column":"country"
};

const options = {
  headers: {
    accept: '*/*',
    'content-type': 'application/json',
    authorization: '<<apiKey>>'
  }
};

axios.post('https://api-v2.short.io/statistics/domain/domainID/top', data, options)
.then(function (response) {
  console.log(response.data);
})
.catch(function (response) {
  console.log(response);
});
require 'uri'
require 'net/http'
require 'openssl'
require 'json'

url = URI("https://api-v2.short.io/statistics/domain/domainID/top")

http = Net::HTTP.new(url.host, url.port)
http.use_ssl = true
http.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE

request = Net::HTTP::Post.new(url)
request["accept"] = '*/*'
request["content-type"] = 'application/json'
